I've just discovered that there is an online collection of 100s of photos of the RDB repertoire taken from the programme books from 1748 to 1973 (realistically, they start at 1941). They are unindexed and mixed with photos of the operas and plays as well, but there are some wonderful things in there if you have time to scroll through - some are well known but most of them I've never seen before.

If I understand it correctly they are from the collection of the state library, put online to help publicise what they have there.

Start here and link from one set to another, or choose a few years from here
